Update: Jake and Dinos Chapman's Art Happens-funded exhibition, In the Realm of the Unmentionable, is at Jerwood Gallery, Hastings from 25 October 2014 to 7 January 2015.

We want to bring a major exhibition of work by the Chapman brothers to Jerwood Gallery, an award-winning beachside art gallery in the artists’ hometown of Hastings.

The exhibition will present a new, previously unseen body of work by the Brothers Grimm of the art world and will feature works commissioned exclusively for the exhibition. 

The Chapmans will scour the antique emporiums and junk shops of Hastings for old artworks that will then be ‘fixed’ by the brothers in their signature anarchic style.

The exhibition will mark a significant moment as it will bring the Chapmans (Hastings’ most famous exports) back home for their first major exhibition of new work in the town where they grew up and went to school.
